7 oz. Thin Rice Noodles (dried)
3 cups vegetable oil (for deep frying)
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil (for stir-frying)
2 cloves pickled garlic, minced
6 pieces shrimp (shelled and deveined, tail-on)
2 Tbsp. ketchup
2 Tbsp. sugar

30 g. bean sprouts
4 sprigs green onions, 1-inch slices
20 g. fried tofu, firm cilantro sprigs (as garnish)

1. Place dried rice noodles in a plastic bag. In the bag, carefully break the noodles into smaller pieces. The bag prevents the noodles from making a mess.
2. In a deep fryer or large frying pan, heat oil.
3. Test the temperature by tossing a small piece of rice noodle into the hot oil. If the noodle immediately puffs up, the oil is hot enough for frying.
4. Deep fry small amounts of noodles at a time. Take them out as soon as they are done. The rice noodles will puff up like popcorn. Be prepared to fish them out of the hot oil immediately in a matter of seconds. Set aside on paper towels to soak up the excess oil.

9. Slowly pour small amount of the sweet and sour sauce over the noodles. Toss the noodles until they are evenly coated with sauce. Repeat this process until all noodles are coated with sauce.
10. Transfer noodle mixture to a large serving plate. Garnish with shallot, bean sprouts, green onions, tofu and cilantro.

3. On each skewer, place a mint leaf, followed by one piece of chicken and one piece of mango. Repeat this process with remaining mint, chicken and mango pieces.

Chicken Spring Rolls
2 oz. Thin Rice Noodles or rice vermicelli
12 (8 ½-inch) round rice papers wrappers
1 cup (1/2 lb.) cooked chicken, shredded
¼ cup carrots, julienne thin strips
1 cup cucumber julienne cut, peeled and seedless
¼ cup fresh mint leaves
12 pieces fresh green leaf lettuce leaves (3 by 5 inches), cut along the rib, remove rib

1. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil. Cook rice noodles for 2 to 4 minutes or until soft. Drain; rinse with cold water to cool. Set aside.
2. Spread a damp towel on a counter. Fill a pan with hot water. (Keep a bowl of hot water next to pan and towel, as you will need to occasionally refill the pan with water). Arrange all ingredients to be within reach.
3. Dip one rice paper sheet in hot water to wet completely. Set on damp towel. The rice paper should become soft and pliable immediately.
4. Arrange one-twelfth amount of the chicken in a horizontal line to the bottom third (2 ½ inches from the bottom and 1 inch from right hand side) of the rice paper wrapper.
5. Place a small portion of rice noodles over chicken. Distribute some cucumber, carrots and 4 to 5 mint leaves over noodles. Place one lettuce leaf over mint leaves.
6. Fold the bottom half of rice paper wrapper over filling, while using your fingers to press down on the ingredients.
7. Fold the right hand side of the rice paper over to enclose the ingredients of the bottom of the roll.
8. Pressing gently on the ingredients with your fingers, gently roll the rice paper tightly upwards to form a cylinder log. Repeat these steps to make the remaining spring rolls. Serve immediately with dipping sauce.
Spring rolls, if not covered tightly with plastic wrap or in a lid container, will harden when left out and exposed to air. Serve rolls whole or cut in half just before serving. Spring rolls can be made up to 1 day before serving. They must be covered tightly with plastic wrap or in a lid container and refrigerated.

¼ cup fresh lime juice
4 Tbsp. sugar
4 Tbsp. fish sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. Thai chilies, minced (to preferred spice level, to taste), optional
3 Tbsp. carrots, finely shredded
¼ cup warm water
Dipping Sauce:
In a bowl, whisk lime juice, sugar, fish sauce, garlic and chilies together until sugar is dissolved. Stir in carrots. Add warm water as needed to dilute concentration to desired taste level. Let stand 30 minutes before serving.
